BrilliantBest thing since sliced bread -
Excellent productThis was recommended by my vet - it's what they use to build cats up when they are convalescing. My cats love it as it has a strong smell and is full of flavour. I can even sneak some of the ProDen teeth cleaner in it (which they won't eat any other way. I also add a bit of water to it, which helps hydrate them.
Happy cat, happy ownerrecommended by my vet and has kept my little cat healthy and happy post toxoplasmosis for the last three years. She is now 19!! She won't eat anything else.
Hills a/dI have a cat who has stomach issues and this is the only food she can eat , thankfully she is happy and healthy eating this. Not having to go the vet for it every time helps a lot .
Why?When she would not eat anything the vet suggested this, and she ate it. If she could talk and tell me why, I'd know why. Now she's back on her usual food but I always have a few tins of this in the cupboard.
